Dustin Hoffman Talks Sex from the Comfort of His Own Bed (1968)

The Graduate came out in 1967 and astounded audiences with its now famous storyline. The young college graduate Benjamin Braddock (played by Dustin Hoffman) finds himself seduced by Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), a family friend, only to then fall in love with her daughter, Elaine. Pretty shocking material for many in 1967.

A financial and critical success, The Graduate made Dustin Hoffman a star, and the celebrity-style interviews soon followed. Above, we have Hoffman getting interviewed from the comfort of his own bed in 1968. The topics: Sex, his sex life, women’s role in society and their sexuality.
